Akhila Vasan, co-convenor of NGO Karnataka Janaarogya Chaluvali, says the rally for affordable health is not new. "It came with the Alma Ata Declaration of 1978 that sought to make healthcare accessible for all by 2000. But this was systematically dismantled by governments across the world, including ours at the centre and the state," she says. Karnataka tops the list of maternal deaths in south India. "This is a litmus indicator. It tells us that our public healthcare system is being destroyed while a large segment of the private sector has turned predatory," laments Akhila.
